5.0 out of 5 stars A good product, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the first Pilates mat I had bought so cannot provide comparison with other products. It is thick enough to provide good cushioning when exercising without being too soft. I wasn't sure which way up it was meant to go, or whether this actually mattered.

I did notice that some reviewers felt the mat did not provide enough grip on the floor - this is not my experience and the mat stays in place. It comes with a useful carrying strap which is simple to affix to the rolled-up mat.

It is slightly pricey but this is a good product, well worth the money - I bought two, the other one being for my wife - and we are both very happy and have no problem in recommending them.

This review is from: The Sugar Girls (Paperback)
This book will be best enjoyed by anyone who was brought up in the east end of London in the 40s/50s/60s and particularly by anyone who worked at Tate and Lyle.

The writing style is easy although I did sometimes find it hard to keep pace with the characters' storylines as the book switches from character to character with each chapter.

There was quite a lot of detail about the working of the factories which could be hard going for anyone not familiar with T & L or production in general.

On the whole, a pleasant read.

Nicely bound and produced book featuring an evocative picture on its cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clapton, 4 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Clapton (Audio CD)
A fine album with a varied selection of tracks, a good description possibly being "music for grown ups." Not much evidence of Eric's blazing guitar but what there is, is track following track of superbly crafted, skilled, playing. Not one poor piece on the whole album, in my opinion; that being the case, it's difficult to pick out the highlights but some of my favourites include: Hoagy Carmichael's 'Rocking Chair', the two J J Cale tracks 'The River Runs Deep' and 'Everything Will be Alright.' The Irving Berlin classic 'How Deep is the Ocean' is outstanding and features an unmissable trumpet solo by Wynton Marsalis. Another two personal favourites are the happy upbeat 'My Very Good Friend the Milkman' and, in a similar vein, 'When Somebody Thinks You're Wonderful. Possibly saving the best till last, the album closes with the classic 'Autumn Leaves' - I heard a comment that God's ipod must have been stolen - I wish I'd thought of that! A well rounded album by a mature accomplished artist, ably assisted by superb musicians performing excellent material. If a mature Clapton is your thing, you won't be disappointed.


Hush Puppies Women's Marcella Black Leather Mid Calf Boot H25240000 6 UK
Hush Puppies Women's Marcella Black Leather Mid Calf Boot H25240000 6 UK

5.0 out of 5 stars Hush Puppies boots, 19 Mar. 2011
I bought these boots as a present for my wife. She is very pleased with them, although they do finish just below the knee, rather than being 'mid calf.' They are stylish and comfortable and are made of good quality leather and they are comfortable around the calves. The heels are not too high, but give her an extra couple of inches height which, at 5' 3", she is pleased with. One warning: the boots do come up small - her normal size is 7, but these were too small and had to be exchanged. Amazon was a breeze to deal with: a courier collected the wrong sized boots and a replacement pair arrived the day after I ordered them. As the original pair were not faulty, I had to re-order but my original payment was refunded in less than 7 days. Good product, 100% service.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Warriors - 1979, 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Warriors [1979] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great cult movie which, I understand is being, or will be, re-made hence my insertion of the date (1979) in the title.

It's shot almost entirely at night and involves the New York gangs - the "armies of the night." The plot isn't complicated, but I won't give too much detail away: a meeting of the gangs is called which doesn't go quite as planned; one of the gangs, The Warriors, is forced to flee through the night from The Bronx back to their home in Coney Island, 35 miles away.

There are no big stars in this movie and, by modern standards, it's a bit dated but don't be put off: the night setting and the intimidatory environment, along with some of the colourful gangs - think Clockwork Orange with Alex and his Droogs, combine to make compulsive, atmospheric viewing. There's also a bonus in the shape of some Ry Cooder music which accompanies the movie.

Draw the curtains and dim the lights, crack open your favourite tipple and settle down to enjoy a 70s cult classic!

PS: I found it interesting to google the actors to see what happened to them following the production of this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Listen (tr 5), 30 May 2010
If you like powerhouse rock, featuring brass and keyboards as well as guitars and drums etc, played by gifted musicians and vocalists and have never heard the Chicago Transit Authority, you are in for a treat. Tracks 1 to 6 are exquisitly crafted songs with perfectly executed and timed layers of vocals, guitars, percussion and brass. Track 7 may be technically clever but, imho, is not in keeping with the previous tracks and is best passed over - but hey, you may disagree with me and find you love it! Tracks 8 & 9 bring the album back into line, followed by 10 and 11 which include recorded extracts from a civil rights protest - sits slightly odd now but possibly relevant in 1968 and, obviously, important to the band at the time. (Track 11 actually turns out to be quite good.) The album closes with a 14 minute jazz/rock improvisation. Although the album is over 40 years old, it still sounds to me as fresh and vital as it did when I first bought it in vinyl back in 1970.
